Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections precisely target the area that triggers your pain. These points are identified through a careful examination, pressing on the “trigger points” surrounding the painful area of your body. Once “that spot” is found, an injection of lidocaine or a similar pain blocker is injected into the trigger point.
Prolotherapy is another way of treating localized pain. The injections into the target area are meant to stimulate the body to flood the area with its own anti-inflammatory responses.
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma is prepared from a vial of your own blood drawn from your arm. The blood is spun in a centrifuge, separating platelets from other blood components. The resulting “PRP,” or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is then injected into the painful area. The goal is to stimulate blood flow and the body’s natural healing.
